Applicants to the Faculty of Language Study select a language from among English, German, Chinese, French, Spanish, or Korean when they take their entrance examination. This becomes the student's "specialty language", which is then systematically studied over 4 years.
*Students cannot select a course for a language that is their native language.
The Global Campus Program starts with students enrolling in the 2017 academic year, and it requires all enrollees to study abroad. Students can apply the knowledge and skills gained from their studies as they spend (in principle) the fall semester of their 2nd year (4th semester) to study abroad within the "Global Campus" system comprised of Teikyo University's partner institutions around the world. Students will be able to experience the world beyond Japan by living in other countries and seeing for themselves differences with their home country.
Teikyo University has prepared a diverse array of educational programs designed to provide students with global perspectives and improve their communication skills. Its global network covers the United States, Europe, Asia, Oceania, and other regions of the world, and a variety of programs have been made available to match each student's study goals, destination, period of stay, and budget. As a matter of course, throughout the study abroad programs experiential language study programs will be held, but in addition a variety of learning opportunities will also be provided for classroom language study, observing the country's businesses and workers, learning its customs and culture, and experiencing its daily life.
Going forward, foreign language education needs to go beyond language study to foster a broad understanding of the world's cultures. In order to acquire this knowledge and degree of specialization, students join seminars for active learning from their second year. Through such practical learning, the program aims to train human resources who can communicate with a wide range of people from around the world.

In the Department of Language Studies, the curriculum focuses on not only language skills, but multifaceted cultural research as well. Following the premise that language skills alone do not make someone a member of the international community, students will also deepen their knowledge and understanding behind their language of study.
